Science Education Minor (M)

In physical sciences, you can help your students understand physics and chemistry so they can explore their role in the progress of humankind. You will be able to explain to others the study of matter, energy, and chemical interactions to inspire the use of technology and innovation for good. In life sciences, you will be able to teach about plants, animals, and human beings so students can understand the relationship between the spiritual and physical world and body. You will receive instruction in apologetics and faith integration with a nurturing and experienced faculty and will be able to lead discussions on how empirical knowledge and ideological beliefs interact.  You will learn about using technology and science concepts in the classroom. The Science Education Minor includes 18-20 credits and the STEM concentration includes 12 credits.
